"Dylan has burrowed into our flesh and lodged in our minds . . . his words, images, tunes have been swimming through my head, rising up from the depths at unexpected moments. The electric violin on desolation row. The pill box hat that balances on her head just like a mattress balances on a bottle of wine. Breadcrumb sins . . . the ghost of electricity howling in the bones of her face. The orphan crying like a fire in the sun. Her amaican um and how she did come. The hard rain forever falling. The answer forever blowin’. . ." Chimes of Freedom tells the story of an irascible individual artist in a period of great social upheaval, a mass movement for social change—and the complex, often tortured relationship between the two. Re-establishing Dylan’s sixties’ master works in their historical context, the book sheds new light on both the songs and the era that produced them. Printed Pages: 392.
